Raining on me
Raining on me,
Feeling alive but I am cold,
Pictures rocket from my mind,
Bubbling noises echo through my soul,
A longing to be consoled,
Concealing a lie to reveal the truth,
Darkness has mailed its envelope,
To be controlled by something in my heart,
Stretching and stretching I can’t pull them back,
Wishing and wishing for what cannot be told,
Blank pages ripple through my mind,
Dripping ink submerging slowly into its tomb,
A craving for something not foretold,
Lost in a maze of hatred for the way things are,
How come for just one day they can’t just disregard,
Losing a winner’s game,
Flying with broken wings I cannot fly,
Jealousy and anger and feelings exploding through my veins,
Into this world I was born for feelings I cannot understand,
Staring into their eyes I lift into the clouds,
Pictures crashing in my mind,
Rules and thoughts bind our longings,
A rose born in the ground that cannot escape its roots,
Horrible feelings of freedom concede my mind,
Chains worn by the mind and locked by the heart,
Wanting to see you again even shackled to the truth,
Falling on me the sky whispers chants,
Sometimes all I want is one single chance,
Streaked windows to be cleaned again,
You shall never know,
Broken glass that cannot be repaired,
Justified reasons and concepts blackened at the core,
Matches igniting,
Bending used and torn,
Waving in the background of a picture hidden away,
A face falling into decay,
Why can’t you just hold that picture in your hands?
Why can’t you just remember me?
Why can’t you just feel like I do?
Want to be with you like I do?
Love spat in the gutter by the world around,
Brought up to hate and tread on the ground,
Lost forever,
Not for even a moment did you truly see me,
Yet I have lived my life for the memories of you,
Album tucked away,
Glass swept to the side,
I don’t want to be forgotten forever,
Raining on me.
